Why are there D-shaped metal rings in each of the slabs that line each side of the bridge? I am very curious about the purpose of these rings that someone worked hard on installing. They must have had a purpose at some time.

It's very possible to build attractive concrete non-arch bridges, even on interstate highways:

One of the more attractive "Non-arch" concrete spans I have seen. Puts me in mind of a smaller scale version of this one:

Very nice looking bridge! Although listed as a slab in the NBI, this may in fact be a concrete rigid-frame.
